*New*Freshwater & Saltwater Fly Fishing

Often the mystic that surrounds fly fishing has people mistakenly think it is a difficult pursuit. Rather, with a professional instructor at your side most people are casting adequately within a short time and adding the comprehensive amount of knowledge gained over a 5 day workshop, you’ll be confidently fly fishing independently for your lifetime. Fly fishing is far more than just a sport, it’s often referred to as an artform because of the science of fly fishing and beauty of the fly cast.

The Coffs Coast region is blessed with arguably the widest range of fly fishing options in one location within Australia. The beautiful headlands and coved beaches are dotted with saltwater estuaries fed by the creeks and rivers that flow from the freshwater hinterland offering fly anglers a wide range of fishing locations and fish species to target from Trout to Bass and Bream to Tailor.

The 5 Day Workshop will Explore:

• Where it all began and why ?

• Fish habitats and fly fishing environments

• Equipment overview – Rods, Reels, Lines

• Knots and rigging up options

• Fly casting theory and practice

• Handling and releasing fish

• Clothing and fly fishing accessories

• On-water fly casting and fishing
